Cardiovascular Effects of Anaesthesia & Surgery
Surgery, trauma and anaesthesia may have a profound effect on systemic haemodynamics. The selection of any anaesthetic technique and drugs should always be based on a sound knowledge of the effects of these on cardiovascular function. This chapter contains a number of tables listing the systemic haemodynamic effects of many of the anaesthetic drugs and techniques in current use, as well as a short discussion on the cardiovascular effects of trauma and surgery. The purpose of this chapter is to provide a guide with which the relative advantages and disadvantages of various alternative drugs and techniques may be weighed against each other for the problems presented by administration of anaesthesia for a surgical procedure performed on any given patient.
